From the Back Cover
Millions of Web designers use Dreamweaver and most of them think creating CSS-based, standards-compliant sites is a challenge. In Mastering CSS with Dreamweaver CS4, authors Stephanie Sullivan and Greg Rewis bridge the gaps between the worlds of CSS design and Dreamweaver by demonstrating how to use Dreamweaver CS4 and CSS together to create individualized, standards-based layouts. Through hands-on projects with lots of visuals, the book enables every user of Dreamweaver to learn CSS effectively and easily.

This book is not for the totally new to Dreamweaver, but is very enlightening to those, like me, who had played around with Dreamweaver somewhat and become fairly familiar with many things (although not understanding how they interact).
Absolutely brilliant for explanation in this respect but this book is not an idiot's guide like some books and therfore one really does need to be pretty familiar with all the layouts/toolbars/panels etc before you try this or you'll never get into it.
Yes, you can probably survive without understanding CSS, but it's SO much easier when you do.........
It feels like someone has switched on the lights to me!
On more than one occasion the bad parts [which excel in that quality] caused the book to travel the length of my study thrown in frustration. Not a good buy and not worthy of your hard earned cash.
Look elsewhere - CSS Mastery by Andy Budd or CSS - the missing manual. Far, far better. This one is just buying irritation.

I must admit I swore at it a few times but later appreciated the small "gaps" as opportunities to learn rather than fall into rote learning habits. When you don't fully understand the CSS you can just complete the code and move on then come back later to develop your knowledge.
I still find CSS a little torturous and it will take me a while to get used to the "trial and error" design process. This book is a difficult but good experience. You will need the patience of Buddha. I find myself highlighting paragraphs which I know will be important when I'm on my own developing my site. I can't imagine any books on "just" CSS that would do the job better and all the books on Dreamweaver simply do not train you in using CSS.
You could actually develop a professional website with lean code using only this book and to get the best out of it you should do that even if it is your own fictitious creation.
If you have to buy only one book on Dreamweaver and one on CSS get this book and save yourself getting two books.
If you are looking for a clearly written easy-to-follow, tutorial type book with tons of screen captures, try "Adobe Dreamweaver CS4 Unleashed" by Zal Ruvalcaba. I found it much easier to follow overall.
